FIL manufactures a diverse range of pipes and fittings catering to the agriculture sector. These products have empowered farmers to enhance farm security by addressing their irrigation needs. During the year, we undertook several meets with farmers to educate them on the advantages of using our products. These meets were carried out during key festivals to better connect with them.
FIL’s non-agriculture segment caters to the growing requirements of the housing, industrial and construction sectors. These products play a crucial role in creating efficient and enduring infrastructure for each of these key sectors.
We undertake regular marketing initiatives which include conducting plumber meets, promoting our products at CREDAI and Indian Plumbing Association seminars as well as organising factory visits.
We have integrated production plants that enable us to ensure a steady supply of raw material to control the quality of our pipes and fittings. The process starts with importing the raw material Ethylene dichloride (EDC), Ethylene, Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM) and coal from international markets. They are stored in bulk at our plant in Ratnagiri, and used for manufacturing PVC resin. The advantage of a captive power plant is that it ensures a steady power supply and reduces the manufacturing costs. The majority of the PVC resin manufactured is transported to our PVC pipes and fittings manufacturing plants. The rest is sold in the open market. At the PVC pipes and fittings plants, numerous products are manufactured which are transported to our dealers and various warehouses around the country.
At FIL, we have a high regard for governance and transparency. Throughout our journey, we have adhered to all the regulatory requirements and giving out necessary information across the public domain. We have developed a robust code of conduct that defines the responsibility and expectation from our employees.
We feel business prosperity is sustainable by sharing with the needy and giving hope to people who often feel they don’t have the right to be hopeful.
In a business which involves manufacturing and customer interface for brand promotion and sales, it is critical to employ the right people who have the ability to leverage market opportunities.
